Ultrasound imaging involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (as used in x-rays). Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.
Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Vascular ultrasound provides pictures of the body’s veins and arteries. Prenatal ultrasound provides pictures of a developing fetus. A Doppler ultrasound study may be part of a vascular ultrasound examination. Because of its many uses, an ultrasound is a handy, noninvasive diagnostic tool for doctors to use.
